3 wood distance

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for a new 3 wood and demo days comes to town this Saturday. I am favoring the Callaway X tour 13 degree. In typical fasion I plan to hit every 3 wood that is less that 15 degrees at the demo days. I hit the X tour on a launch monitor and got about 250 out of it. I did not buy it at the time beacuse I wanted to hit other clubs and hit all of them outside instead of into a net.

What lofts and distances the rest of you are hitting your 3 woods?

I have tested many 3 woods and have had some luck with some great ones (Nike SasQuatch/ Taylormade 200 Steel), but there's one that i will never part with. I recently picked up a Taylormade R580 (15*) w/ Grafalloy Blue shaft for 50 bucks used and have never hit a better 3 wood. I hit it 260 avg off the tee and 240-250 off the turf.

I purchased a 13* Callaway X Tour off ebay for less than $150; I love it yet at my age and swing speed I can't compare to the 260 yards plus some of you guys are getting. I'm closer to 230 with a nice low traj. and a beautiful looking draw. This is off the stock fuji Reg shaft too. I demo the Cobra, cleveland and mizuno and felt the Cally X was the best suited for my game.

I have just picked up a Callaway X Tour 13, and reshafted it with a Accra T70 M5. I am good for about 265 or so off the deck and about 270 or so off the tee. It is the first 3 wood I have tested in a while that allows me a bit of roll after landing, so it's a little longer for me than just about anything else I have tried.

dont ask me i dont use one.

 

i hit my 15 degree bridgestone hybrid 230 to 270. i bought it blind and figured i'd sell it while it was pretty much new if i didnt like it. i dont hit my 3 wood consistently at all so i was looking for something different.

 

i was AMAZED at the distance. i'm not the type of person that blows hot air when it comes to my distances. i can hit an easy fade to 230-240. an easy draw 235-250. and if i raelly unload from either side but particulary right to left i get extraordinary distance and plenty of roll if thats a possibility.. a hair over 260 is my max carry. i hit my driver consistently 290 and my 5 iron 195.

Gee, you guys are long hitters!

 

My average is not that high. Realisticly, I'd say that I hit about 220 yards average, although the stats that I keep suggests otherwise. (I always note down the tee-off distance.) The average from the tee box is 241 yards this year. There's one drive with my 3 wood just this Tuesday on a par 5 that's setup to play 482 yards that the ball ended up at 200-yard marks. So, that's about 280! (And this was not from an elevated tee.) Best 3 wood I've ever hit.

Dangggg....what do you guys hit your drivers...320? :)

 

Tourstage X-ST 15*...250 average. :)

Look who's talking. Your average is no difference from the others. :beee:

 

I think I'm the shortest one here. My average driver is 261 this year. So, it looks like a lot of you can put 3 wood past my driver from the tee box.

Wow,

After reading this, no wonder I feel inadequate!!!

 

904 F 15* goes about 235 off the deck. About 245ish off the tee. YS6+ in stiff, and its almost always a nice, high draw. Lands soft!! Regardless of the ball I am using.

 

I've tried various other 15* with little success or good feel (TM V Steel, Cally BB2004, Cleveland Launcher, Sonartec)

 

The Nike T-60 was great, but I just didnt like the profile as much. Great club. It may find its way in sometime.

 

PS I hit 13*. What you get in the extra distance (thing is close to a driver) you give up way more in control. Too little loft from the fairway to keep it straight.

 

You need to hit it off the grass, not astroturf!!

I can attest to the 250yd average since I play with him every week. He should be hitting it way farther since he is 5 inches taller and 55 lbs heaver than me. :beee: He still can't hit it farther than me :)

Hmmpphh...you are a freak! The way you hit your 3 wood is amazing. I swear you hit it longer then your old driver. It's the reason I picked up the Purple Ice to attempt to keep up....but sighhhh....I'm still not. :)
